Fabric book of the sea Pages 12 & 13

I haven't made any pages for this since last August, as the house move and a dose of flu that I am now getting over haven't been very good for creativity.
The one with jelly fish has a felted wool and silk background with machine and hand embroidery. The jelly fish are made from crystal organza with various yarns for the tenticles.
The memories page consists of photos from 60 + years ago, and having been taken with old cameras, haven't printed very well onto the fabric. They are faded a bit like the memories. They are all family photos. The sea is a collection of yarns sewn down at random, and the sandy bits have French knots and a few shells added.

These pages are beautiful Wendy. You have captured the jellyfish perfectly and the faded photos add a little something extra to the page than clearer ones could.

Two very beautiful pages. The jelly fish look as if they are in motion and the photos must have lovely memories for you.
